Posters in the streets of Dublin

UpStart Collective launched its campaign to promote creativity during the Irish General Election 2011 on Tuesday 1st February, by reinterpreting the spaces commonly used for displaying election campaign posters in Dublin City.

1000 posters, submitted by artists, writers and poets are being put up across the centre of Dublin.

The objectives of UpStart are to encourage a debate on the role of the arts in this state, by highlighting the importance of creativity and ingenuity when society is in need of direction and solutions, and to emphasize the value of the arts to public life. The future development of the country requires a healthy cultivation of the Arts.
